Halo Reach Daily Challenge 25/12/2010

Merry Christmas guys. I know many of you are busy but to those who do have spare time, here are the challenges.

Where There's Smoke... - Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1000 cR

1 game of Scoreattack to blitz through and you're done.

A Friend in Need - Earn 5 assists in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1300 cR

Assists, you know what to do. Damage them then let someone else finish them off. If you shoot a turret once with a sniper in Sniperfight then let someone else finish it off, that's 1 assist. Shield popping, also try to would some targets in the area of an artillery strikes.

Return of the Mack - Kill 35 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder. - 1700 cR

You can either pick an Elite heavy mission such as the final part of Long Night of Solace or you can play Lone wolf time after time. The weapons on the level will aid you for a good 10 - 15 kills.

Foggy Notion - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Cloud and Famine on. - 1400 cR

You guessed it. Winter Contingency. The mission, like I said yesterday, is just perfect. You can do most of it without firing a weapon and the enemies are in places that are obvious.

There we have it, have a good day folks, Merry Christmas and Equal merriment to all who don't celebrate or celebrate something different. Have a grand day.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 24/12/2010

Good day, Good morning. Been up most of the night so a bit tired. Let's do this quickly.

More than a Handful – Kill 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1750 cR

Explanation it gives is really all you need.

A Great Friend – Earn 15 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Another common one. The shield pop, the Plasma Pistol Overcharge, the Melee. By now you should have a basic understanding on assists. Best way to do it is to buddy up with 1 or more people and co-ordinate attacks. Alternatively, leave it to Multi Team. Make a kill steal in that. 15 assists over the day, not so bad.

Light Fuse, Run Away – Kill 4 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000 cR

If you don't get the reference you need to go back and play some Halo CE before you do anything else today. 4 Grenades, Just like back in the day, although technically you could head to the armoury and pick up a Rocket Launcher. But whatever. 4 Grenades in 1 game, you just need to weaken them a bit then get the grenade near their them. Often works best when they're distracted or with a sticky grenade.

I Need Some Ammo – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Famine Skull on – 2000 cR

Well with Famine there won't be much to go around. Once again I'll say it, Winter Contingency. It's just such a perfect mission for these challenges. You start off with more ammo than you need and you can just blitz past most of it without firing or getting hit.

There's your lot for today. Have fun out there guys.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 23/12/2010

Firefight Thursday, a good day to work on the weekly is you want to get a boost.

Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 500 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2500 cR

Although this challenge doesn't need to be done in Firefight, 5 games, 25 waves and you'll have this challenge done. Not hard, just kill, like you do normally and get a massive boost to the weekly.

A Friend in Need – Earn 10 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Assists, team up with a friend (or 3 for best game connection results), and work together to get the challenge.

Heroic Demon – Kill 20 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking on Heroic or harder – 2000 cR

Kill 20 Elites, can't explain it any other way really. They'll spawn in the last wave of Scoreattack & Sniperattack. Sniperattack will give you 4-12 Elites to kill.

Blast Radius – Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with Grenades - 1800 cR

Throw some grenades in the mix and get kills with them. Corvettes monster rooms are good for this. Also if you can get them just as they spawn.

There we go, that be all for today. Time to go off and do some more Christmas Shopping. Bye.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 22/12/2010

Morning, how be ye all today? More Challenges for today, Bits in Campaign, Firefight & Multiplayer, so let's get started:

One Spartan Army - Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1500 cR

Start up some Firefight, you've got 15 Waves there to add to the weekly and with all the enemies you can easily nab 150 kills. If you're still a bit short, play another round or head into Scoreattack.

No 'I' in Team - Earn 8 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1560 cR

An odd cR amount but whatever. 8 assists is hard to do when you're not aiming for it. Remember, this has to be in 1 game. Do what you can to co-ordinate with your team members.

Above the Neckline - Kill 3 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1000 cR

3 Headshots in a single game is rather Tame. You can do it in Invasion as the time given in the game and the first run up to the objectives both help you here (Boneyard especially). You could also, play a game of Snipers/SWAT, as they are both headshot orientated gametypes.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 75 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today. - 1750 cR

Winter Contingency. Plough through all the enemies in that mission (Skip out the Elites if you want) and once you reach the Falcon you should be done/almost done. It won't take more than 10 mins on Normal.

There we have it for today. Hope you guys picked up on the large amount of cR there was yesterday and as Christmas dawns I wonder what challenges they'll have for us on that day. Bye.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 21/12/2010

Bit late but nothing here you don't know how to do. Certainly a grindfest today though. So lets go.

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2500 cR

You can get this doing one of the others. Or if you don't get that, just go and kill.

Stronger, Harder – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Famine, Tough Luck and Thunderstorm on – 2750 cR

2 words, Leg, It. We've had this one many a time now and the best way to do it is to just stick it on Winter contingency and just charge through the whole level.

Fortified Court – Kill 1000 enemies on Courtyard in Firefight Matchmaking – 3500 cR

Here's the grinding. 1000 enemies is the equivalent to 9 games of Scoreattack. That's a lot of waves by the way. This challenge will set you just under or on the half way mark for the weekly. (if you need an extra game). It's not challenging, just keep choosing none of the above until you get Courtyard, then go out & have fun.

Go Right Ahead Folks – Earn a First Strike in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1250 cR

I can't really help here. If you have a group team then yeah that'll help but the only way to get this medal is to just be quick. Grab Sprint or Jet pack and find the first kill first. Zombies can work well, provided you can get the first Magnum snipe off.

There we have it, NOthing there really challenging, it's either a case of Speed or Grinding. With that I leave you now. Have fun.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 20/12/2010 Ride the Wave

Ride the Wave

Ride the Wave - Complete 100 Waves in Firefight Matchmaking. - 4000 cR

Well, this is rather easy, 100 waves isn't that many games of Firefight. You spend around 25 mins in Firefight for 15 waves. So that's 7 Games. You can do a Firefight a day and be good. Or you can do a bunch in one day, today would be a good day as there isn't much on the Challenging side.

Alternatively, 20 games of Scoreattack, Gruntpocolypse sure does fly on Corvette. No matter what you choose this isn't the hardest weekly by far. Do it how you want and have fun.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 20/12/2010

Today is a good day. We got the Minecraft Beta out today. It's not out yet but remember this, People who buy the Alpha get free upgrades for life. People who arrive in the Beta will have to pay. Grab it while you can. Also, a new weekly challenge has appeared. But first, The Daily Challenges and I must say. Nothing Challenging here today.

Home Field Advantage - Win 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1800 cR

Win 4 games. That's all. To win games, partner up with people who are better than you or be good yourself. I'll let you sort it out.

Gunslinger - Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1000 cR

Within those games you won I'm assuming you got a kill or 2 at some point. Continue doing that until you have 40 of them.

Demon - Kill 20 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2500 cR

Nab the Elites from your friends in Firefight or wait it out and get 4-12 of them in Scoreattack & Sniperfight. Take your pick.

Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 2000 cR

The combination of the wins and other challenges (more so the Firefight one) will give you much more than is needed.

That's it for today. I know easy starts to the week are nice but this is a tad too easy. Easy credits in the run up to Christmas. Have fun, Weekly will be up shortly.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 19/12/2010

Still Lots of Snow. More annoying today as I'd like to go somewhere. Anyway, Challenges, all Campaign & Firefight today:

One Spartan Army – Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 2500 cR

3 Games of Scoreattack will get you this. Any version of Scoreattack will do. It's just killing

A Friend in Need – Earn 10 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Pick a friend up and go together into Firefight, make sure you call out targets and work together. If you go in by yourself, you can spend 30 mins and get only 2 assists.

There are Many Like… – Kill 100 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today – 1000 cR

Start ONI Sword Base, the level spawns you with a DMR and on the Catwalk on the left, at the far back there is a Sniper. Restart mission when you're out of ammo, repeat.

Roast ‘em, Toast ‘em – Kill 10 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal – 1200 cR

Just hold down the equipment button while killing an enemy. It doesn't matter how you kill them, you can hold down equipment and melee and it'll still count. Just start at mission rally point Alpha and head on your way.

There we have it, once again, nothing really tricky, just time consuming and easy. Have fun and remember it's the last day for the weekly.
